CHILDREN'S CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Godly Play - Pre-K - 3rd Grade
Sundays, 9:15 AM
Godly Play is a storytelling program for children from Pre-K through 3rd grade (with transition for 3rd graders to the next level). The format allows children to experience the great stories of the Bible, to reflect on the stories through reflective “work” in a variety of mediums, to share in a feast of thanksgiving, and to actively take on roles that help them take care of their sacred Godly Play space. From this arena, the children then move on to a music component before entering the service at the Peace. The program is supported by volunteers who have helped make the materials needed for the program and volunteers who have committed to be storytellers.
(9:15 AM Sunday)
4th - 6th Graders use the Episcopal Church Curriculum, which covers the Old Testament and New Testament, as well as the Sacraments and the Episcopal tradition.
Up (9:15am Sunday)
7th - 8th Graders will be focusing on ways of Praying, as they begin their transition to adulthood.
Vacation Bible School
Saint David’s actively participates in and supports the Ledyard / Gales Ferry Ecumenical Vacation Bible School program. Run by a group of local Christian churches in the community for one week during the summer, attendance is about 100 children. The program rotates from church to church offering each the opportunity to host. The program relies on members of all the churches to help staff the program.
